I had an appointment today with my CPN about being the lowest I’ve felt ever and suicidal, she asked can I keep my self safe I said yeh I guess. She said if I feel I can’t to ring them or my gp. I go bk next week to see them again, I feel like I can’t keep going it’s getting stronger the feeling, deep down I don’t want to end it but I have a feeling and thoughts that it’s the only way I can cope. What happens if I tell her I feel unsafe and won’t be able to keep my self safe? What will happen? Any one had experience? I have a 1 year old son and a single parent, I live with family thou what will happen to my son? Please don’t judge? I have depression and once treatment for anorexia

Nobody's judging, Mary. Everyone here has been through difficult times and can understand mental trauma.

If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe, do as your CPN says and contact them. You said you live with family- will they be on hand to take care of your son? That's the likeliest scenario- that they will take care of your son, while you're admitted in to a mental health care unit. There, you will be seen by mental health professionals, who will assess and help you.

Why do you feel you can't cope? Is there something happening to make you feel this way?
Coping is about finding solutions to problems. Reaching out can be a way of coping, so if you want to share, there's always someone here.
